Wen Lei came to America several years ago. He had to learn many new things. He was telling an American student how his life was in those days.
â€œI went to the English school everyday, but it was still difficult,â€ he says. â€œAfter school, I went on to the part time job I had. Then I went back to my apartment.â€
â€œDid you go out on Friday nights?â€ asked the young American.
â€œNo, because I was going through problems in my homework. I liked to get that done first. â€œI went into the library to work because it was quiet and I could concentrate there. I usually went down into the basement of the library building. They had lots of study booths there. I stayed for several hours, but sometimes I went up to the cafeteria for a break. I had a coke then. That is what I did on Friday nights.â€
Wen Lei was quite a serious student.
